I can not believe that it has already been 12 years since I graduated from Sam Houston State University and began educating young minds. Teaching is truly my passion, and my students are my favorite part of the day. Every year is an adventure. Prepare yourself for a lot of fun in learning and challenging your mind.

Notice and Note

Hello parents! I would like to give a big shout-out to all of the parents who were able to make it to the Parent Orientation on Tuesday! I really enjoyed meeting all of you, and I am excited about teaching your child this year! If you were unable to make it, I sent a pink brochure home with your child in their Wednesday folders highlighting some important dates and contact information. Please feel free to contact at anytime if you have any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to partnering with you this year to ensure your child's success!
 
I have attached a file outlining the Notice and Note: Six Signposts reading strategies that I touched on at the Parent Orientation. Please use this as your road map for questioning your child about his/her reading. Remember to encourage your child to read every night! The only way to become a better reader is to read, read, read!
